How do we help the Iranians in their fight for democracy?

Unfortunately, we don't. Here's why.

Iran has been ruled by religious zealots for a long time. Since the 70s it has seemed that the Iranian people have been comfortable, at least relatively so, under the leadership of the Ayatollah and a figurehead President.

Today not only are they uncomfortable with the President, but they actually are revolting in the face of divinity. It's the beginning of a new era in Iran. The Iranian supreme leader came out in support of the election results, and this was not enough to dissuade protesters. This is an extremely important point because the Ayatollah's words had gone relatively unquestioned in the past. Previously his words would have been considered other word of God, therefore unquestionable.

Recently there is been an official investigation launched into the election wrongdoing, unfortunately the presidency has no motivation to search for truth, regardless of the outcome. Admission of any wrongdoing, even if the victory would have come in a closer race, would mark the end of the presidency.

The Iranian authorities really have no choice but to attempt to squash the protesters, likely through militant means.

The protesters will face great adversity in the days ahead.

While the US can support democracy, we can't be seen as interfering in another Moslem society. We've toppled regimes in Afghanistan and Iraq, where there is little or no support, based on the expectation of delivering the world from terrorism and weapons of mass destruction. Had we not invaded Afghanistan and failed, and not invaded Iraq without just cause, we may have been able to aid the Iranian people in their quest for democracy. Unfortunately because of poor previous decisions we now can not afford to meddle in the affairs of another Islamic Society without turning the whole of Islam against us.

The vast majority of Islam are peaceful people. While many among them see religious extremists as uncomfortable leaders, the alternative is a democracy delivered to them by Western Christians. Imagine if you will, if militaries from an Islamic country invaded ours because they saw reports of protests against President Bush. There were many who doubted the election results between President Bush and Al Gore. The fact that President Bush's brother was governor in the state that ultimately decided the election certainly fueled conspiracy theories. While many people would have been happier had Al Gore been elected, very few people would have been happy at the prospect of an Islamic nation invading ours and toppling our presidency.

There was another bloody battle in the quest for democracy 230 some years ago. In that battle a underfunded and under armed militia defended itself against the largest empire on earth and literally stole its own independence. Democracy and freedom have an amazing way of finding themselves. Traitors to England are the men we now call patriots in the United States.

Iran is headed for what will likely be a bloody fight toward democracy. The Iranian people are outmanned and outgunned, and the regime currently in power has been known to be ruthless. This may be just the first battle of a long revolution. I have confidence that democracy is divine, however. Whether you believe in Jesus, Allah, or Buddha I believe that peace prevails, but the path to peace can be dangerous and bloody.

To the first patriots of a new Iran, I wish you well and safety. But if you cannot be safe, then I wish you freedom and liberty.


  1. “Iran” The real question is who is creating this madness?

    “The Israelites have ravaged this land (Palestine) through plunder and murder, they have killed their friends with whom they had drunk wine, and they have deceived and misled their fellow believers of the Jewish cult, who are truly not Israelites but merely believers in a cult.

    Thus the Israelites betrayed their own friends and murdered them because of their greed, but it shall likewise be done to them by the rightful owners of this land whom they have deprived of their rights and subjugated since ancient times.”

    - The Talmud of Jmmanuel, the gospel of The Christ manifestation on earth that the Pharisees do not wish for us to read.

    Next question; why is this madness being allowed? Is it about greed or power? Or is it part of a perfect plan to restore the service-to-others orientation within the soul of humanity?

    If we do not read to understand material outside of the control matrix, we then have nothing to stand on but more of our own speculations based on the disinformation created by the controlled medias.

    I will not be returning to this post. Therefore, if you have comment regarding mine, please use the Contact Us on my website.

Friday Funnies: Funny Retail Signs

Well, it's Friday so maybe you're planning to do a little shopping tonight. Watch carefully, and you might find some entertaining retail signage such as these. Here's a collection of funny retail signs from around the globe, mostly from the good old USA.

If you're planning to stay overnight, make sure you have a shilling and a few extra pence if you need to stable your horse. Here are the Rules of Inn.

After Christmas wrapping paper goes on sale, and so does Rapping paper, apparently.

Special offers are everywhere! You can get two drinks for the price of two! Don't worry, after four you won't notice how much you're spending anyhow.

I didn't even bother going inside.  Clearly I would violate several of these store rules.

How United Airlines Should Have Handled the Situation

United Airlines is under fire for a viral video that shows them removing a passenger forcibly from an airplane bound for Louisville Kentucky.
Here are the bullets:

The plane was already loaded and full.The airline needed to fly four employees to Louisville Kentucky on the plane. The employees needed to go to prevent another plane from departing late.The airline offered $800 in compensation to the first four people who would volunteer to give up their seats. No one took the offer.The airline went to a lottery, drawing for people at random. These four people were asked to leave the plane, and they would receive the compensation.One of the passengers refused to leave. It's unclear how things escalated, however he was removed by security officers. Reports are conflicting about whether the officers were police officers, TSA workers, or airline staff.The gentleman was literally physically dragged down the aisle receiving while screaming in protest and physically abused in the process.Ap…
